UN is ‘abusive’ and ‘bullying’ Israel – Haley (2 minute video) 

China: Former political rising star sentenced to life in prison for corruption  . . . but we can’t even get a Pakistani Spy Ring that’s been in our Congress for years to be recognized by our government. I think we very seriously need to ‘get real’ about our attitude towards China. When we clean up our life here at home, maybe we can then criticize other countries. Am I making any sense?

Two Koreas, One Yuan? China to Play Key Role in Korean Economic Unification

On April 27, South Korean President Moon Jae In not only shared a handshake and verbal discussion with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as they met in demilitarized zone between their two countries – he also handed his fellow leader a USB drive that held South Korea’s proposal for a “New Economic Map of the Korean Peninsula.”

An article in the “Panmunjom Declaration,” the name given to last month’s historic summit, proposes connecting and upgrading rail and road systems. Many of those systems will also ensure that the entire Korean Peninsula becomes more seamlessly linked with China — and Russia — according to a new report by the South China Morning Post.

Reportedly, a rail link would connect Mokpo, a southwestern town, with Seoul and Pyongyang and eventually Beijing. The first of those belts would link the west side of the Korean Peninsula with China; another would connect the east coast to Russia for the exchange of energy; and one along the demilitarized zone for tourism.

South Korean officials have been quiet on the topic and declined to give details of the drive’s contents, SCMP notes. Park Byeong Seug, a member of Moon’s ruling Democratic Party of Korea, said the proposal adheres to policies Moon outlined in his seminal July 6 “Berlin Speech.”

“The concept of the three belts was one of President Moon’s pledges during the election last year,” Park said. “The new economic map includes railway links between the two Koreas and China’s northeast stretching all the way to Europe.” . . . Click article title to continue reading.

Trump Did NOT Convince Kim to Ditch His Nukes. China Did, by Mike Whitney 

Donald Trump thinks his “maximum pressure” campaign persuaded North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons program. But it’s a bunch of baloney. The reason Kim Jong-un is planning to denuclearize is because China adamantly opposes nuclear weapons on the peninsula. That’s the whole deal in a nutshell. China, who is North Korea’s biggest trading partner, gave Kim an ultimatum: Ditch the nukes or face long-term economic strangulation. Kim very wisely chose the former option, which is to say, he backed down. 

The situation in North Korea is really quite bleak. Consider, for example, this recent piece in a United Nations periodical titled “The 5 most under-reported humanitarian crises that are happening right now”. Heading the list is this blurb on North Korea: . . . Click article title to continue reading. 

Russia is opposed to a war between Iran and Israël, by Thierry Meyssan

Israëli bombing raids since December 2017.

Israël fired nine missiles against two Syrian military bases in the night of 29-30 April 2018, causing serious damage.

What is surprising about this operation is that the Russian radars did not transmit the alert to the Syrian authorities, who were therefore unable to intercept the Israëli projectiles.

It transpires that the attack was aimed not at Syrian objectives, but at Iranian targets installed on Syrian bases.

In honour of a treaty anterior to the war, Iran came to the help of Syria from the beginning of the foreign aggression in 2011. Without this assistance, Syria would have been beaten, the Republic overthrown, and the Muslim Brotherhood installed in power. However, as from September 2015, Syria has also been supported by Russia, whose firepower is far superior. It was the Russian Air Force who destroyed the underground fortifications – built by NATO and Lafarge – with their ’bunker-buster’ bombs, thereby allowing the Syrian Arab Army to recapture the ground they had lost.

Today, the aims of Iran and Russia diverge.

Is Armenia’s coup complete? Opposition calls for a ‘velvet revolution’ and sees off legitimately elected PM 

SOTT Comment: We had colour revolutions and now we have fabric revolutions, whatever next? It looks like Armenia has fallen to more insidious powers, Ukraine-style, and we wait to see if the people will be as happy and prosperous as those suffering in Ukraine. 

For a possible explanation why Armenia has been targeted: Armenian prime minster resigns in face of protests: Coup echoes Ukraine’s Euromaidan

Armenia will more than likely pivot even faster to the West like it’s already been in the process of doing now that the shadowy Gulen-like California diaspora is on the verge of seizing total control of the state by proxy and have intimidated the population into accepting the “replacement” of their Russian-friendly “oligarchs” with American ones instead. Russia stands to lose from what just happened because the Pravy Sektor-esque hyper-nationalists might conveniently attempt to redirect society’s piqued anger towards their country’s historical partner now that it’s associated with the disgraced Sargsyan after President Putin ironically congratulated him last week for “[his] appointment to this responsible post (which) reaffirms [his] high political authority and broad support for the reforms aimed at solving the socioeconomic challenges facing Armenia.”

    Nikki Haley needs to understand that we aren’t in junior high anymore. This thing of calling United Nations bullies because they don’t believe Netanyahu doesn’t mean they are bullies. It means they know bs when they smell it.
